The following is a portion of an email I received earlier today from an agent. No, I'm not querying agents any longer, but I still had one submission out.
Agent: Dear Devas T., Thank you for sending me the first ten pages of your manuscript,. . .
Me: Dear Ms. Thang, I didn't send you the first ten pages of my manuscript; I only sent 3.
Agent: Although I appreciate your idea, I am sorry to write the opening pages didn’t grab me enough to want to request the rest of the manuscript. . . .
Me: It's good you're not requesting the rest of my manuscript because there ain't no more to send. It's a picture book, I sent the whole thing.
Agent: Thank you again for giving me the opportunity to consider your material.
Me: Thank you, too. But I don't know whose material you considered. It sure wasn't mine.
